Tea Time on Top of the Mountain

DH and I were having rose and raspberry tea during our break in trip to Hualien (Eastern Taiwan). The water used to make the tea is said to be the freshest spring water in that place. For us it's just an ordinary tea, what important is the ambiance!~drinking tea on top of the mountain :)

Swallow Grotto of Taroko Gorge

Our third stop is here known as Swallow Grotto. We have to wear helmets for precaution. The suspension hanging bridge above is very long, but we're not allowed to cross it. According to the tourist guide, people wants to cross the bridge has to ask permission to the government first. They're only allowing 40 people per day.

We passed through this dark tunnel...

We spent 40-45 minutes walking and capturing the place until we reached Jinhang Bridge (as seen at the background).

The 100 Lions Red Bridge

Welcome to Taroko National Park in Hualien (Easter Taiwan)

We walked/passed this bridge on our way to Shakadang Trail Valley

Taken under the bridge...

I'm now in Shakadang Trail, kind of scared to look down :)

Shakadang Trail in Taroko National Park

We're early birds when we arrived to Hualien (Eastern Part of Taiwan ) that's why we had the chance to cross Shakadang Trail or know as Mysterious Valley Trail as fast as we can and I had the chance to take lots of photos without hassles. As soon as we finished hiking, people started coming !

The Shakadang River, the trail goes to a small village

This one is not much scary, but we have to keep our head from hitting the rocks.

Luckily, the weather cooperated that day.
When it's raining or if it's windy, no one is allowed to enter.

Flying with Trans Asia Airways

The smallest aircraft I've ever took

Seven o'clock flight from Taipei SongShan Domestic Airport to Hualien (Taroko Gorge)

Here's the series of the aircraft I took from the beach in Hualien

Much closer, looks like a dragon fly :)
